Been awhile

I'm back for a minute for an update. Still busy but took time out to join a swap. It was called a Stuff Swap, where I recieved 5 items and had to use them in cards. Before I start I need to update you on happenings since Christmas.

We spent a wonderful almost 2 weeks on the other side of the mountains at my daughters. Gave them a break and went to Shelton, a small town out of Olympia and taught a TIPS class. What a beautiful area. It's mostly trees, mountains and water. Our motel, thanks to the Little Dog Casino was right on the water. Not only did we look and water but it poured buckets of it. Was fun though. On the way home we stopped to spend our Christmas presents. Chucks was for fishing supplies, my at the craft store. I bought a die set from Spellbinders. Then the first of the month we went to Wenatchee to Costco. Had lunch with my oldest son and was close to the fishing supply store, so he had to get more goodies. What's good for him is good for me. I bought 2 more Spellbinder dies. I'm happy. Didn't have any snow. Have only had a little bit all winter. Suppose to rain today, hope it's not like it was over there.

Now to the card. The hostess sent 3 white flowers. I'm not much on using these, so wasn't sure what to do with them. I'd been wanting to try out my new die cuts so grabbed some paper and started cutting. I love the stamp I used, it's been discontinued from CTMH. But you know me I don't get rid of anything. I embossed it gold to match the gold background, then started mounting the layers. When it came to the flowers I put them every different direction. Decided this was the best. After I got it all together I saw that I could have moved them up alittle, but there fine. The centers are gold brads from my stash.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think. If I get time tomorrow I'll share another one. I have 4 more. They go out in the mail today, hope who ever gets them likes them.

Until the next time, have a wonderful day. Don't stress the small stuff.
